Bufo Bufo

I recently saved the lives of two in as many days; the first one (pictured) tried to cross a pedestrian/cyclist asphalt path in strong sunlight. The second one was on a similar mission but at a different location (at first I thought it was dead) in the middle of a pedestrian/cyclist path however the latter was paved with gravel and not asphalt.
